Description
 

A compelling chronicle of a hiking and wildlife research expedition along the Carpathian and Sudeten Mountains, from Romania to Germany, some 800 miles as the crow flies. (This volume, Part 1, covers the first half of the journey, through Romania and Ukraine.) On the trail of wolves, we are led deep into the dark forests, misty hills, and intriguing history of this fabled landscape, where encounters with wolves, bears, and lynx; werewolves, vampires, and witches; lumberjacks, shepherds, and outlaws; poets, tyrants, and saints; deities, demons, and sirens--and such ancient peoples as Proto-Indo-Europeans, Dacians, and Rus, and such imposing historical figures as Attila the Hun, Vlad the Impaler, and Volodymyr the Great--provide broad insight into the natural, historical, and mythological forces that have shaped, and continue to shape, the cultures, nations, and psyches along the way. 63 black and white photographs also emblaze this memorable trek. (We also offer a Deluxe Edition with the photos in color: see ISBN 978-1633931534.)
